I mean, of course you can write myChar := 0000042;, but as far as I understand the hash instructs the compiler to interpret the integer to come differently. More importantly, I can’t write something like 0000004 * 0000006, I can’t _calculate_ with char values. Hence I think it’s utterly wrong to call a char an integer type. If it is anyway, this needs explanation. No tags attached. 1795 3.2.2 Attached Files

Great, the hashes followed by integers were converted to ticket references. I think you know what I meant. 2021-01-24 18:56 administrator   ~0128567 Thanks. I also removed boolean, as it's not an integer. I added a small subsection about characters in the ordinals section. 2021-01-25 13:25 reporter   ~0128584 It may also need some explanation that a C char is not a Pascal char type.
